Re: Sticky Gears (Tbird Pimpistik)

let me guess. Is this after it's been sitting in the cold for a while?
cold gear oil can do that. it's so thick it isn't letting the syncro ease things in. If you let the clutch out, press the clutch in again, then try again it's usually a little easier to get it into gear. Yeah, it's lame. change gear oil.
